Ramaswamy Out
16 Jan 2024

Vivek Ramaswamy – the Trumpiest of the non-Trump Republicans – suspended his campaign about 10 hours ago. He leaves polling 4.1% in the numbers – leaving behind Trump himself with 63.1%, Nikki Haley at 11.9; and De Santis at 11.6 in the field. So, while nothing is cast – least of all actual votes – it looks like it might be a Trump candidacy.

The latest YouGov polls (January 11) show incumbent Joe Biden losing to any of the remaining Republican candidates – but Haley wins by most, followed by De Santis.

Then again, folks, as we saw last time, when it comes to American election results, polls are things you dance on to make extra cash.
